Congrats to coach Hay for his 800th win as a WHL head coach in PG last night.

Don becomes only the 9th coach in WHL history to reach the 800 win mark and is starting his 12th season in the league. In a 72 game season that is a .916 career winning %.

He has 3 Memorial Cups as a head coach in his time in Kamloops, Tri-City and now in Vancouver.

Regardless of anyones feelings of the Giants, you have to respect the man and what he has been able to do and the number of young men he has molded into pro players.

WTG coach! Glad you are in Vancouver long term!

Hate the Giants... but love Don Hay.. even in preseason he doesnt take crap will call a time out to give it to the players to send a msg. Giants are lucky to have him as a coach. Hope Habby can bring some success as the Bruins coach in his 2nd season.

Cougars are 1-3, expected though. It was guaranteed two losses were upcoming against the Giants :lol:

Also Trevor Linden was at the Cougars Home Opener, how cool a guy like him comes here, not every day that happens.

Hey McCabe...go to the CN Center last night?

I didn't get a chance to listen to the radio but checked the scoresheet after the 2nd and couldn't believe how lopsided the PP chances were. I hear even the Cougars PBP was saying it was turning into a bit of a joke. Granted 4 of the penalties were earned by the Giants twice for too many and twice for delay of game.

3rd star should have been the Giants PK.


I mostly just listen to the games on the radio, saves me transportation money, ticket money, food money etc.. because we don't win many games :P

I'll be heading out to more games this year, then I did last year it seems though. At least when I go to the games, I can see a good player in Brett Connolly.

Hey oth, are the Rockets not good this year? They're 0-3, and I'm not sure if they're just off to a slow start, or are they really weak this year. Seems like they're having a hard time scoring, as even the Cougars have 7 more GF then them.

On a side note; Oil Kings won today against the Warriors, 3-2.

Kelowna is a young team this year. They have quite a few 94 and 93 birthdays on their team.


Their losses have been close though. They do have a big team. If this is just early season chemistry issues, and they start to click together coupled with their size, they could be dangerous. Alot I think will depend on Adam Brown between the pipes.

Come on, I have to cheer for the few PG teams no matter what...

I remember the days when the Spruce Kings were in the playoffs, and the Coliseum was jammed pack, and there was only standing room. Miss those days, and it seems like it won't be happening this year :lol:

And how long ago was that? 10 years?

:lol:

Trail is actaully doing well this year so far. St. Denis and Mellor actually got invited to attend Team Canada West's evaluation camp for the World Junior A Challenge.

Man, BM24, go make a separate thread about BCHL already :P

Might go to a few Giants games this year, since they're so cheap compared to the Nucks, like $60 bucks for Balcony view? Posted Image

Prince George, BC – The Prince George Cougars announced Sunday the acquisition of 20-year old defenceman Sena Acolatse from the Saskatoon Blades. In return, the Blades get a third round pick in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.

Acolatse, a 5’11”, 207 pound product of Edmonton, Alberta, was acquired by the Blades during the 2009-10 season, after starting his fourth campaign with the Seattle Thunderbirds. Acolatse collected 16 goals and 19 assists for 35 points last season. In 256 career regular season games in the WHL since 2006, Acolatse has collected a total of 30 goals and 61 assists for 91 points, while adding 373 penalty minutes.

Acolatse will join the Cougars Monday and will be in the line-up when the Cougars face the Kootenay Ice Wednesday night in Cranbrook.


Yeah he brings experience and leadership but I don't know. Probably could have got him for a 4th rounder. Blades had a glut of O/A players.

Shopuld add a litting scoring from the blue line.

Carning Returns to Sweden

October 4, 2010

Vancouver Giants forward Casper Carning has decided to leave the team and rejoin his club team in his native Sweden. The 19 year old was the Giants 2nd pick in the 2010 CHL import draft. He picked up 2 assists in 6 games with Vancouver.


Didn't see much out of him anyway. Wouldn't go to the corner, wouldn't get his nose dirty. Probably better off without him.

I just wonder why he is leaving only 6 games into the season.

So the Giants now have an open Euro spot on their roster. Wonder if they will try and fill it or not.

Cougars have been busy the last few days with O/A signings

COUGARS ADD TAYLOR STEFISHEN

Prince George, BC – The Prince George Cougars are pleased to announce the addition of 20-year old forward Taylor Stefishen to the roster.

Stefishen was a sixth round pick of the Cougars in the 2005 Western Hockey League Bantam draft, selected 112th overall. The 6’0”, 185 pound product of North Vancouver, BC, joins the Cougars after playing two seasons of NCAA Division I hockey with the Ohio State Buckeyes of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. In 40 games at Ohio State, Stefishen collected eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points and had 14 penalty minutes. Stefishen was selected by the Nashville Predators in the fifth round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, 136th overall.

“Adding Taylor to the roster gives us experience and depth to our forward group,” said Cougars General Manager Dallas Thompson. “We feel Taylor can make an impact for our team and we look forward to seeing Taylor in a Cougars uniform.”

“It’s very exciting to join a team like the Cougars, with great management and players,” said Stefishen. “I think I can bring some leadership being an older guy and from what I have learned in the NCAA. I think I will bring some added skill and grit to the team which is the kind of player I am.”

Stefishen will join the Cougars in Cranbrook when the Cougars face-off with the Kootenay Ice Wednesday night.

I think it is the end of this week that you have to cut down to your 3 on the roster. And of course up until now you can only dress 3.

Not quite sure what the whole plan is with it though. Doesn't really makes sense to me...

Cougars have also been throwing away the draft picks lately for players, sure hope it doesn't come back to haunt us.

Dallas Thompson wouldn't do something that would come back to haunt the team and fans would he? Anytime I see a press release from him I throw up in my mouth a little.

I would imagine they have been working this new guy hard. Though he has to realize that if he is 20 and still playing NCAA without a sniff of playing pro yet, he needs to go somewhere that will give him a fighting chance to understand what travel and a 72+ game sched is like.

Dallas Thompson *Shiver* <_<

The talk here in PG about the Cougars is about, how much they suck, how much Dallas Thompson is ruining everything, and how much they suck thanks to Dallas. <_<

Sigh...

I think the Cougars are going to be vastly improved over last season.

I see the attendance for the Friday game vs. Giants was over 5000. That is getting back to the Chara days attendance.

For the home opener?

Well I guess it helps that Trevor Linden was there, let's see in another few weeks how it is.

They (Cougars) gave several thousand free tickets to elementary schools (my neighbors kid got them), so did my co-op directors kids (different schools). They needed to make the stands artifically full for Trevor Linden day in PG (no, I am not kidding).
